My grandfather, Stanley (Stanislaw) Joseph Janiszewski, was born in Poznan (Balin), Poland, in 1865. He arrived in America on May 25, 1889. His wife, Catherine Genevieve Janiszewski (Siatkowska), and their daughter Margaret arrived here in 1890. They settled in Schenectady, NY. (Catherine was born in Poznan in 1873.) One of his sons, Martin Janis, lived most of his life in Detroit, Michigan. In addition, one of his brothers, Walter (Wladislaw), allegedly became the mayor of a small town (city, village) near Chicago, IL.
